By BBN Staff: Supporters and members of the People’s United Party (PUP) are gathering at the Constitution Park in Belize City to stage a protest against corruption in Belize.
According to the PUP, the purpose of the ‘Save Belize Now’ march is to stand up for the country of Belize against all the atrocities being committed by the UDP Government. This comes after the party’s Senators attempted to introduce a motion to open a Senate special select committee to investigate the passport scandals as reported by the Auditor General but were unsuccessful since the Senator for the Churches, Pastor Ashley Rocke voted against the motion.
PUP standard bearers and supporters from all over the country are expected to be at the event.
A source in the PUP told BBN that 3000 people are expected to attend and as a result police presence has been heightened to provide safety and security to everyone.
BBN will have more on the protest later today.
